The family has identified the 7-year-old girl struck and killed by gunfire after a high school football game in Delaware County on Friday night, 8/27. Fanta Bility was shot once and died later at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Lansdowne. It happened at 9 p.m. at Academy Park High School on the 300 block of Calcon Hook Road in Sharon Hill. The football game between Academy Park and Pennsbury High School (Bucks County) has just ended and people were leaving the stadium. Shots rang out near the main gate as people were exiting. Police took 3 people into custody and weapons were recovered.

UPDATE: Fanta Bility was 8-years-old, not 7.

The City of Philadelphia said on Sunday that 505 total evacuees have come through Philadelphia International Airport as part of Operation Allies Refuge PHL. Those people have arrived on two aircraft, with many more expected. "I'm very pleased with the high level of coordination occurring at PHL Airport to best welcome Afghan evacuees into our country," said Mayor Jim Kenney. "I thank all of the City departments involved as well as state and federal agencies, local hospitals, non-profit partners, and volunteers who have stepped up to aid our Afghan brothers and sisters during this critical time. We anticipate this operation picking up speed in the coming days and appreciate the public's support by way of volunteering and donating in the recommended ways."
